The Day After; Carolina

News and notes on the Carolina Panthers.

--DE Kavika Pittman, a key reserve in Carolina's pass-rushing rotation, was lost for the season when he tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee. Pittman will be placed on IR in the near future and the Panthers will look to sign another pass-rushing defensive end.
   --DE Kemp Rasmussen could see more action in the defensive line rotation with Kavika Pittman out for the season. Or, the team could also slide Shane Burton out to end and activate rookie Kindal Moorehead.
   --QB Jake Delhomme will maintain his grasp on the starting quarterback spot despite finishing with a quarterback rating of 15.9.
   --LB Dan Morgan missed Sunday's game with a hamstring injury but is expected to return after the bye week and be ready for Atlanta.
   --RB Stephen Davis leads the NFC in rushing after two weeks with 253 yards on 55 carries (prior to Monday night's game). The next closest is Ahman Green, who has 213 yards
